The nationwide flu epidemic is slowly making its way toward Oregon.  Local officials indicate they are preparing for the flu season to hit our area; so far we are still in the early phases, but identified cases are increasing.

The trend for this particular flu season is that the peak is lasting longer and, in general, people seem to be sicker.  Good news is that the match for the vaccine appears to be pretty good.  People who were vaccinated may still get the flu, but if they do it will be a milder case.

Here are some important notes and reminders:

  • It is not too late to get vaccinated!
  • Students with underlying medical conditions who develop influenza-like symptoms should contact their doctor within 48 hours to see if an antiviral should be started.
  • Wash your hands thoroughly and often.
  • Cover your cough, use a tissue when you cough or sneeze or do so into your sleeve, avoid touching the T-zone (eyes, nose, mouth) with your hands.
  • Wipe surfaces frequently as this is a common transmission mode.  Flu virus is easily killed with regular disinfection.
  • If you’re sick, stay home!
